Inspired by Alison Bernhoft.
An Unscrupulous Used Car Salesman
He’d sell you a rusty dustbin on wheels
And claim it’s the very sweetest of deals.
“FEAR, FEAR, DEATH and LIES”
Each front-page headline loudly cries.
A tousled frown, a tipsy grin –
This Irishman’s as fun as sin.
If only activities occupational
Could somehow be more recreational.
A glowing page of purest white,
This Word file is zero kilobytes.
I see a cavern gaping wide
And steer my tires on either side.
A musician fanatical
Writing music mathematical.
I stay up early and wake up late;
Before noon my brain can’t computate.
Our Dog, Frank
With his mix-and-matched looks and a need for sedation
It’s no wonder he’s named after Shelley’s creation.
Twice five is the number of fingers and toes
And the year Wang Mang outlawed the use of crossbows.
